Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 130 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware of the lemon My 46" Ariens mower is a lemon. It is a 2011 and has only been in service for 3 northern summers, or said another way less than 100 hours. The spindle was replaced because the blades were vibrating and hitting the mower deck. Now I have serious issues with the B&S engine. The engine now needs to be overhauled and rebuilt. Dont buy this product. My mower started these problems weeks after the 3 year warranty. Don't buy don't buy don't buy. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shrub cutter My Ariens 46 has the power to mow through ferns, small saplings, blueberry bushes, and anything else I find in the woods. Oh and it does a professional job on my yard too. The motor is powerful enough to chop up anything that goes under the deck and it has enough speed to traverse rough terrain/hills. I use mine like a brush hog at camp clearing ATV trails. Ergonomically it is a perfect fit for me, enabling me to hours of comfortable cutting. Wish the mower deck could be raised higher than 4" (standard height for most mowers). July 9, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cheaply designed transmission, plastic parts instead of metal designed parts Less than 6 months old and already down twice for service. Never will buy another Ariens product August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power and construction for the price! Made by Husquvarna, this tractor has plenty of power and features. Because it is not the brand name, you don't pay the premium price, yet you still get the excellent construction of a great machine. May 28, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs good handles the slope in my yard with ease Delievery was timely and pack arrived in good shape. The instructions seem to be a bit poorly written. Some illustrations point to wrong area of picture for the location of levers. Unpacking was straight forward until the instructs tell you to roll the mower off the crate. It is not possible to roll this off the crate. At least not the one my mower was delivered on. the mower was in at soem 500 lbs and had broken through the slates. You had to left it out and ever the crate edges. Battery was dead, took two hours to charge it. So if curb side delivery means the mower is out on the street away from your charger you will have to pull the battery and take it in to charge. After charging the battery and filling the gas tank it started up easily enough. It took a couple of tries. They did not explain the the start position (choke engaged) means push the throttle up to the top (plus a bit) once you do that and there is gas in the line it starts right away. Mowed and acre plus of damp grass on a sloping hill side with no problems, Turns on a dime. You do have remember that to back up you need to turn off the cutting blades, Killed the mower twice when I forget and but the mower in reverse to back out of a tight spot in the yard. I have a very uneven bumpy back 3 acres and although I have not yet tried to mow this ground I have pulled a small trailer with load over the area with the mower and it worked well. The mower has good traction and is very stable. Overall I am very pleased with the mower. January 15, 2013
